2022 Civic Awards Nomination
Every day in Bollington people who care about our community make a positive and worthwhile contribution which affects the lives of others. Sometimes these acts go unrecognised but this can be remedied by nominating those people for a Civic Award.
The awards will be presented at the Mayor’s Civic Sunday on Sunday 18th September.
